Boss Strategy Guide

Officer Volff

officer volff.jpeg

Take Down the Leg Volffs

This is your first fight of the epilogue so it isn't too difficult. Focus on the Leg Volffs first to get them out of the way before tackling the leader of the pack.

Bring Nene to Tank

Before the battle starts you'll be given the option to switch up your party. To keep the focus away from your character of choice, swap Nene for Shulk or Melia so she can draw away enemy attacks. This is especially useful for Shulk so he can use his position-based attacks for more damage to quickly take out the Volffs.

Snowal Talos


Back Slash!

Snowal Talos has pretty low HP for a boss and doesn't do much damage, so pick your preferred party setup and hit it hard with Shulk's Back Slash to take it down quickly.
